Londo Mollari on Iran?

The recent saber rattling with Iran has reminded of a quote from Londo Mollari of Babylon 5:

“Only a fool fights a war on two fronts. Only the heir to the kingdom of fools fights a war on twelve fronts!”

  • Opening a second front when the first front hasn’t been secured.
  • Going to war with with Italian Army on your side.

Bush went three for three.
